Not to be confused with the 1982 American movie of the same name, this Australian film – which owes a great debt to both John Waters and Roger Corman (with a nod to the Rocky Horror Picture Show) – has something to insult or assault the sensibilities of just about everyone.
Left to die in the desert as a baby and raised by wild dingos, a topless Dingo Girl (played by well-endowed former Australian Playboy Playmate of the Year Amanda Dole) emerges on Bondi Beach to search for her parents and meets building surveyor Kales Leadingham (David Argue), who falls in love with her (and narrates the film).
She soon finds herself in the clutches of deranged film director E B De Woolf (Esben Storm) and his crippled wife (Arna-Maria Winchester), who happens to be her evil mother.
A mishmash of exhibitionism, crudity, nudity, vulgarity and cheap thrills, much of the action takes place at a disused Bondi movie studio and amusement arcade called Babylon.
Just about everyone wants to have sex with the virginal Dingo Girl, from her lecherous filmmaking stepfather to an accountant who is transformed into a small-dicked ape-man (Pete Smith). Even the little Adolf Hitler clone (Ashley Grenville) – heir to the next phase of the Nazi regime who happens to have a nose that constantly expands like a demented Pinocchio – is being groomed to marry her in order to continue the Aryan race.
There are twin Nazi lesbian vampires, an Aboriginal who may be the Holy Ghost himself, impromptu song and dance numbers, exploding heads, a crucifixion, dancing midgets in koala costumes . . . and the few characters that don’t want to bed the Dingo Girl want her dead, believing her to be a female messiah who must be slain in a sacrificial ceremony.
A character called Dr Doctor (played by the film’s director, Haydn Keenan) makes an “AIDS-free” clone of himself for some reason and later feeds the clone’s decapitated head to zombies.
It’s hopelessly indulgent, completely bonkers, and so “what the fuck?” chaotic that it’s actually difficult to watch. Shot on a budget of $700,000 using recycled sets from other current Australian productions (including Les Patterson Saves The World), the film made its money back overseas – primarily in Japan, where they loved it.
Ignatius Jones, the lead singer from Aussie band Jimmy and The Boys, appears in a number of small roles.
